Literally. The operation went well, and I am doing well, but I am supposed to be maintaining a downward gaze until the air bubble in my eye dissipates, and the interior fills with vitreous fluid again. See, I told you you it was dangerous to pray for humility. At any rate, this makes it hard to write blog posts in the regular way, but I have devised a complicated method that involves writing the post in Word, while only looking at the keyboard, printing it off to check for errors of which I am sure there will be many, and correcting while standing up, looking down at the screen. So, I'll start that tomorrow. If this posts in full of mistakes, I'm sorry.
Thanks for your prayers. It's good to be back home. Even though I've only been away for a day and a half, it feels like forever. Of course, most of today was spent watching daytime TV, which, if it doesn't get you a million years indulgence it should. It was a long day.
